Test Procedures for Fuels, Systems, and Components

TEC4FUELS is a competence centre for conventional and alternative fuels and lubricants and their application in existing and new technologies. As a research service provider, TEC4FUELS is active in the research and development of technical components and products, systems and energy sources as well as their application in the energy market for fuels. This includes the development and implementation of application-oriented hardware-in-the-loop test procedures to determine the functionality and performance of application technologies and fuels. The aim of the investigations is usually to optimise the operational safety and service life of technical components and systems. In addition to test procedures and fuel checks, TEC4FUELS also offers R&D-related consulting and other services. This also includes testing and certification, procurement as well as manufacturing and sales of the products.

TEC4FUELS supports its customers in the following areas:

Development of special hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) systems and implementation of test methods for quality assurance of technical components as well as conventional and alternative fuels and lubricants.

Fuel check for emergency power supply systems
Monitoring the quality of fuel stocks in emergency power supply systems (emergency power generators) to maintain availability and operational safety.

Technical Consulting
Advice on fundamental questions of innovation management, pre-development, concept development, series development and after-sales service.

As an experienced and reliable partner, TEC4FUELS meets the highest quality standards and accompanies product development from the initial idea to quality assurance and the production of prototypes.

Our cooperation partners

TEC4FUELS GmbH works together with the Institut für Wärme und Mobilität (IWO) and the OWI Science for Fuels gGmbH on sustainable solutions for energy system transformation.

Institute für Wärme und Mobilität e.V.

(Main shareholder of TEC4FUELS GmbH)

Climate protection and energy system transformation are among the greatest challenges of our time.

As an institution of the German petroleum industry, the IWO supports the climate goals and the change in energy supply. On behalf of our members, we use our expertise to ensure that highly efficient technologies and increasingly CO2-neutral fuels in mobility and heat supply become a pillar of the energy turnaround.

We are active in four core areas: co-designing framework conditions, technology development, fuel research and communication. Well-known manufacturers of heaters and components as well as other institutions and associations accompany our work as supporting members.

In order to achieve the necessary successes in climate protection, it is important to tackle current and future challenges in a competition for the best solutions that is open to technology. Transformation paths with a broad mix of technologies and energy sources are more robust and cost-effective than those that rely predominantly on electricity-based applications.

Such a mix should also include liquid energy sources, as these have a high energy density, are easy to transport and can be stored very well. In some applications their use is almost indispensable. This makes it all the more important that liquid energy sources are increasingly produced in a renewable way and can make their contribution to climate protection under suitable conditions.
